Good Morning All

I just have to vent for a few minutes. I had IUI # 3 done on Sat May 5th. I can already tell that it didn't work as my PMS symptoms are right on track. It hasn't even been a full week since the procedure and I already know. I tell myself everytime " don't get upset, don't get upset" but that's just silly because it is so hard to get anything BUT upset. We have one more sample as we ordered 4 , after this next procedure and sample we'll have invested 6000$ , it's so much money. I don't even know what will happen after this last sample. Money is just a huge factor in this whole thing as well as my mental well being. My husband is great but I think being the woman, I just feel it differently. The dissapointment , the heartache, the general sadness. It's unlike anything I've ever felt before , it's really hard. I feel blessed for having a healthy life and a loving family and husband but I can't help but feel cursed in the quest to have my own family. I thought the point of living was to continue creating it , to better our futures. I live in a city where the mortaility rate of infants is ( I BELIEVE ) the highest in the country. The other day there was a young father in custody for beating his triplet infants. I don't know how he was able to father children and my husband can't. I know we are faced with injustices every day , this is not a unique situation in human evolution but it does make you stop and wonder, what IS it all about?

I'm sorry to be such a debbie downer ESPECIALLY on a Friday and it's a lovely day in my city today. I sincerely everyone here is one step closer to parenthood.

Trying to keep my head up

Big gigantic virtual hugs Becky. Thank you I am sure some day our dream of being parents will come true- it's just hard working towards it when it seems hopeless sometimes. I am so thankful for Just Mommies !
